Alpine Eco Trek

We asked Alpine Eco Trek to organise our 3 weeks trip : the famous Mt Kailash tour and the trek until the Everest advanced base camp ! First, during several months before the validation of the trip, we were impressed by the relationship by e-mail, the very clear answer to all of our questions, their way to find the best compromise and the sense of details...
